    Pros

    Being in the prototyping stage of projects was a blast, and the people are very easy to get along with. Very nice 401(k) matching and flexible hours make getting to work easy. Yearly raises and bonuses are pretty nice also.

    Cons

    There is no communication whatsoever. Sales and management promise impossible timetables and then punish employees with layoffs every quarter when these deadlines aren't met. The management doesn't know and has no interest in learning what skills their employees have, so some employees are overloaded with 70-80 hour work weeks while others have nothing to do. Being in a P&L contract industry, some risk is understandable but there is no job security at all.

    Advice to Management

    TALK. Talk to your employees and staff. Try to understand what they can do and what sort of lead times are possible. Stop keeping things a secret and invest more in your employees. They want to work, you just have to give them the tools to do so.

    Pros

    Not a stable company to work and the salary is not good too

    Cons

    My conclusion is the company need build up the reputation. Do not try to hire a lot of people then announce to lay off many times, that's a bad news for the company.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Nice facilities at Corporate. Challenging work, constant learning and changing environment. Ability to advance career.

    Cons

    Unnecessary stressful environment, claims to be performance based, but more political then performance based. Constantly changing priorities and processes. Too much change. High turn over. Difficult to have a life and work there.

    Advice to Management

    Minimize change when change is for the sake of change not an improvement. Use more carrot than the stick in management style.

    Cons

    The company has no loyalty to good resources or dedicated employees , laughs will happen at the drop of a hat given they operate on slim margins

    nothing as contract manufacturing/distribution difficult field to manage as you're driven by customer needs and wants
